I`ll Just Take The I-Got-A-Lot-Of-Cheese Award

Look what I got! The lovely Donna gave it to me. Is it nerdy of me to admit how pleased I am to be nominated for a blogging award? Each time I hit publish, I feel a twinge of self-doubt; is this post interesting / witty / relevant? Being nominated gives me the validation that my insecure little heart desires.

So the rule is that I need to link back to the person who nominated me (check!) and then nominate 10 of my favourite / most read blogs. It's tough choosing just 10 (what can I say - I have a boring job and read a lot of blogs to pass the time) but here I go (in no particular order):

- spiritofplace (the first blog I ever read, before I even know what a blog was)
- Dutch Blitz (the second blog I read, because of the link on spiritofplace)
- Life in the Left Lane (she's getting married around the same time I am and it's fun to read about her preparations ... and then freak out about how unprepared I am compared to her)
- See Hear Speak No Evil (3 ladies who never fail to make me giggle)
- The Art of Over-Thinking (because it's eerie how alike we are)
- Trials & Tribulations of a London Lass (her slang reminds me of when I lived in England)
- No Ordinary Rollercoaster (because he has a cute dog - not as cute as Stella obviously, but cute enough)
- Just Jenn Rants & Raves (she bakes and then takes pictures of her awesome food - it makes me hungry)
- New York Dactyl (funny. shit.)
- Chelsea Talks Smack (she makes me think)

So there you go. Check them out. Make some new friends.


  1. are very sweet. I will print off said award and attach it to Calvin's collar so he can freak out about the crinkling noise for the rest of the day.

    Oh those skittish.

  2. Thanks for the new reading material! :) And yes, I do hope the Canucks start to do better so I can gush about them. LOL. The last two games weren't very pretty.

  4. Thanks for the shout out! Woo-hoo! You rock! =)

  5. THANK YOU for the shout out, Internet Soul Sistah! (P.S. Your writing is fantastic! You totally deserve the award!)

  6. thanks! It's so exciting to see friends set up blogs and even better to realize that we're responsible somewhat for their addiction...

  7. I was the second blog you ever read???

    I had no idea! What an honour.

    Thanks for the award!

    I think you are fully deserving of the Excellence award.
